Transparency and Exclusive Rates
At Skimlinks, we value transparency and aim to provide you with clear insights into the performance of your partnership with Pepperjam/Ascend. In this article, we will explore how you can access performance reports and set up exclusive rates for different websites. Our goal is to empower you with the information you need to make informed decisions and optimize your collaboration with Pepperjam/Ascend.
Performance Reports: A Closer Look at Publisher Performance
To gain valuable domain-level insights, you can utilize the Publisher Performance Reports and Transaction Details Report available within the Pepperjam/Ascend platform. Here's how you can access these reports:
Publisher Performance Reports
1. Go to Click Track -> Performance -> Publisher Performance Reports.
2. Choose whether you want to group the results by publisher or by a combination of the Publisher and Publisher Referral URL (Skimlinks 'Parent Domain').
Transaction Details Report
1. Navigate to Click Track -> Transactions -> Transaction Details.
2. In the Optional Columns menu, you can find the Publisher Referral URL.
3. The Transaction Details Report also provides the full page referrer under the 'Referrer' column.
Exclusive Rates: Tailoring Commissions for Different Websites
With our integration, you have the flexibility to set up unique rates for each website using the Publisher Referral URL feature. Follow these steps to configure exclusive rates:
1. Create a new commission term by going to Pay -> Commission Terms -> Create New Term.
2. At the 'Add Condition' step, click on 'Publisher Conditions'.
3. Look for the option 'Attributed Click's referral URL matches any of the supplied URLs'. Here, you can add multiple publisher domains.
Note: When entering the referral domain URL, please include the protocol and subdomain, for example: https://www.cosmopolitan.com/.
We recommend consulting the list of referral URLs with your Skimlinks Account Manager for accuracy.
